Self-design for the future hybrid.
During the long quarantine period, my life becomes the sequence of daily routines in a
limited space. Under this condition, I was pushed to extend my time and activities online.
However, this sense of hybrid experience drives me to develop my self-virtual space and
identity. I start to play with AR, especially the available tools, such as Spark AR or Fectar,
to create avatar and face-filter.
Besides, with those self-built 3d spheres (360 images) on phone, I could “travel” virtually
to anywhere at home. Our life experience itself becomes a kind of panorama, which can
be digitally archived, uploaded, and shared with others.

interest in the intersection of graphic design, media art and technology, she explores the
unspeakable minds, mental-self (digital identity) reflected by the emerging technology.
She uses "Interactive Storytelling” in practice, merging computational techniques & effects
with emotional stories, to compose fictional Narratives while communicating about human
imperfection or vulnerability in our digital age.
